FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to transfer website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are required in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any impediments.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the server order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In any case, you’ll be given FTP access to the VPS without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software bundle that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even different accounts for a single directory – if you want several users to access the website content in it with their very own personal log-in credentials.
